<p>I think the problem I had was that I kept constantly moving before I came to high school. So, I ended up starting in a public high school in an area without having gone to the local public middle school.
People around me lived in the same area for years, so they made close friends in middle school. Then they all went to the local high school and continued their already established cliques.</p>
<p>I came from a totally different middle school, so I guess it was hard to break and join a clique. People weren't interested in making newer friends I guess--they were more focused on strengthening their bonds. </p>
<p>Did anyone else deal with a similar problem to mine?</p>
